One day I'd like to hike the entire John Muir Trail and not leave a single footprint. -Randy Morgenson

Lucky kangaroo, best dressed `roo in the Outback....Goretex is expensive gear. Very funny.

Hey, I think I might be part Kanga.

The gear I want a report on is on some of that Wagga Wagga Cabernet....I need a bottle for my WZ trek this summer...where can a `roo get some of that?

I hate it when that happens.

Wonder if the roo came back to drive the rover.


Journey well...

Wagga,

Thank you for the link to buy some Wagga Wagga Cabernet. A bottle of it is going on my Gear List. The corker cat is one classy cat.


+@2itd,

I was wondering the same thing about the `roo.

Kitty is a boy. His name is Merlin. He has an astonishing wardrobe.

Fromm an Amazon review:

"This book is a one-of-a-kind; the subtitle is: The Secret Life of Merlin, a cat adopted by the author and who is the model for all of the pictures. The book is a history of cats told in short essays and covering a period from prehistoric times to the present day. Merlin is a very patient cat and was posed and photographed by Mr. Weigal wearing a costume that illustrates the aspect of cat history or lore that is the subject of each essay.

The costumes were hand-made for Merlin and many of them are very elaborate. The book is a good source of information about cats and their place in our shared history. But what makes this book such a delight are the wonderful pictures of Merlin, who appears to have enjoyed the photography sessions, representing all cats from all periods of time.
